I stayed there with my wife 5 nights. I asked for a rear room in a high floor in order to have a quiet room without hearing the street noise. I received such room in the 6th floor, but no one told me that this room has only a small window near the ceiling and in order to open it one must climbe on a chair. As we arrived a very late arrival, I asked the receptionist in the morning to check if there is another room with "regular" windows. He promised to check it for me but never came back with any answer.
When we arrived and checked in, the receptionist who welcomed us suggetd me a deal for the breakfast for 12 Euro instead of 19 Euro per person. He told me that there is an option to take this offer for 1 day and warned me from the possibility that other receptionists will tell me that we might have this offer only if we take it for the whole rest of the stay. In the morning, when I tried to take 1 morning offer, the current receptionist refused and said that there is no option for 1 day. He blamed the evening receptionist that he did not understand the policy. So we went out, across the street and had breakfast in the great cafeteria there in 3 Euro per person...
Overall - great hotel, modern, comfortable and excellent location.
